BEKO Drypoint RA
It is not the investment costs that determine the cost efficiency calculation regarding refrigeration dryers – but the operating costs. Considering an operating period of five years, only between 20 and 30 per cent of the total costs are allotted to the pure investment, while 70 to 80 per cent are allotted to the ongoing operating costs.
These costs are split equally between electricity costs, flow resistances in the system and compressed air losses through leaks. Pressure drop at critical spots must be compensated by enhanced compressor performance and the resulting additional energy demand.
With BEKO Drypoint RA, these operating costs can be reduced by almost half, considering a period of time of five years. In the return-on-investment calculation, the full potential of the new refrigeration-dryer generation is proven: the dryers pay off within an operation time of only six months.
The air-cooled BEKO Drypoint RA compressed air refrigeration dryers complement the BEKO TECHNOLOGIES dryer programme with another cost effective alternative. The comprehensive RA model range of products allows optimum adaptation of the compressed air processing to individual operating conditions. All models excel in minimum pressure loss even with varying work loads and in their low energy consumption. The standard series comprises refrigeration dryers with performances up to 5000 scfm.
In the BEKO Drypoint RA, compressed air drying takes place via an optimum heat exchange through a counter-flow process over the cooling surface; the air flows constantly in a downward movement without turbulence.
This generously dimensioned counter-flow heat exchanger, which includes an air/air and an air/refrigerant heat exchanger, cools the compressed air down to a temperature of +3°C. The size of the heat exchanger not only supports a particularly effective cooling, but also reduces the flow resistance to an absolute minimum.
Condensate drainage and drying centrally controlled
For the BEKO Drypoint RA , the condensate drainage was integrated in the device concept: the refrigeration dryers are equipped with a BEKOMAT® as standard.
Patented, Vario Flow hot gas by-pass valve that is independent from the electronic control board maintains constant pressure guaranteeing a stable dew point without freeze ups, and no adjustments are necessary.
